BiblioWoods EBXL edition Updated

I just posted an updated download link to a fresh release of BiblioWoods for ExtraBiomsXL to fix some issues that came up. This version has been tested to work with EBXL v3.16 on Minecraft v1.7.10. Head on over to the Addons page to find a download link for BiblioWoods EBXL edition v1.3.

In other news, I’ve been making really good progress on the features I want in the next major feature release of BIblioCraft. I am getting quite close to wrapping up the feature set for this cycle and just focusing on bug fixing. If you follow my twitter, you may have seen some preview images of the main feature of this coming update, the Atlas. I think the Atlas is the most complicated thing (from a development point of view) I’ve integrated into BiblioCraft so far, but it has come along really nice. Check out my twitter feed for some preview pics. Custom painting support is also another of the big features of this update. In this next version you will be able to drop .png images into a special folder into the jar OR create a custom resource pack with .png images in the same folder structure and they will load onto a new 3rd tab on the painting press for custom paintings. There is no limit to the number of resource pack painting packs or custom paintings that can be installed. The 3rd custom tab is paged and can be an unlimited number of pages. Best of all, paintings are client side and do not need to be installed on the server or other clients to work, though other clients will get a special ‘painting not found’ painting if they don’t have a painting of the same name installed. Anyway, I’ll share more details closer to release time.

I will likely try to get translations up within the next few days for the next BiblioCraft feature feature as I wrap up the feature list and get everything localized, so watch my github for that if you would like to help out translating. I’ll try to get them to the translation spreadsheet shortly after so you can help out there too.

BiblioCraft v1.8.2 released!

BiblioCraft v1.8.2 has been posted to the downloads page. This is just a small update that fixes the typewriter recipes, which wasn’t setup to match the correct color of stained clay, so that is fixed now. I also added support for forge ore dictionary sticks in all the recipes that use sticks. For example the different Natura sticks or Growthcraft bamboo can now be used in place of vanilla sticks in recipes.

Also, I want to give a shout out to delax for creating a bibliocraft book formatter utility that can be used to convert text files into either Vanilla or Big Books for use with the typesetting table. Check it out on the addons page for more details and more links.

Head on over to the downloads page to grab a copy of BIblioCraft v1.8.2 and if you have any comments, questions, or issues feel free to post in the comments here, on the official thread on the Minecraft forum or create an issue on github. As always, Enjoy! :)

BiblioWoods for BiblioCraft v1.8.x released!

I just posted download links on the addons pages for 5 new BiblioWoods addons. These are all updated to work with BiblioCraft v1.8.x and include support for the new clocks and painting frames. The addons are available for BiomesOPlenty, Forestry, Natura, Highlands, and ExtraBiomesXL.

BiblioCraft v1.8.1 is released, Important bug fix.

I just put up BIblioCraft v1.8.1. This version has an important fix for the clock recipe. I had a small issue in the recipe code that was causing a crafted clock to disappear and other terrible things. This will fix that.

Also, My good buddy ShabbyQ made an awesome spotlight to explain the new features. Definitely worth watching!

BiblioCraft v1.8.0 is officially released for Minecraft v1.7.10 AND v1.7.2!

It is that time again, time for another big feature release. Lots of fun stuff in this one. This one includes Clocks, Typewriters and Painting Frames. A Painting Press block is included to select paintings for use in the many different styles of painting frames. Currently you can use any vanilla painting or one of 7 custom paintings included in this first release. I would like to expand this to support custom paintings eventually so people can add many more paintings of their choosing.

The clocks are animated with sounds and will play chime sounds and(or) output redstone during selected times of the day.

The typewriters are the start of a much bigger idea I have. If you add paper, you can right click the front face of the block to write a random(ish) procedurally generated story.  You can also use the seats to capture and hold a mob in front of a typewriter and that mob will type stories. To capture mobs on seats and for them to type on a typewriter they must be named with a name tag. Mobs don’t need to be on a seat to use the typewriter, but they must be within the block right in front of the typewriter keyboard. Eventually I will expand these stories and try to make them more and more random and interesting.

I added a few other smaller features too, like carpets under desks, which work somewhat similar to the table and seat carpets only you don’t need a screw gun to remove the carpet, just sneak click with an empty hand. I also attempted to add support for BiblioCraft blocks rotating correctly when used with archimedes ship mod and I seem to have been mostly successful. I had no issues in singleplayer, but in SMP there was a couple of rare instances where they didn’t rotate correctly.

Head on over to the changelog to see a full detailed description of everything that has changed and been added.

BiblioWoods updated for Forestry, Biomes O Plenty and Natura

I just posted the download links on the addons page for new versions of BiblioWoods for Forestry, Biomes O Plenty and Natura. This includes an important fix for the Forestry edition regarding Forestry 3.x that was causing crashes. The fix is backward compatible and should work for all versions of forestry for Minecraft v1.7.2 and 1.7.10. There has been quite a bit of localization updates thanks to everyone who has been contributing and the newest versions on github as of today are included. Also fixed in the Biomes O Plenty edition were the missing textures. The Ethereal wood texture is working on everything now.

Re-release of BiblioCraft v1.7.5 and a BiblioWoods BoP edition fix.

Two issues came up this evening that I wanted to address straight away. First it turns out my BiblioCraft v1.7.5 release was no fully cross compatible, something about how the different versions compile caused a crash with the armor stand in MC v1.7.10. So I re-released BiblioCraft v1.7.5 with a separately compiled version for MC v1.7.2 and another for MC v1.7.10.

There was also an issue with seats in the Biomes O’ Plenty edition of BiblioWoods so I fixed that and uploaded that. Find the new version, v1.6, on the Addons page of this website.

Hopefully I have all the bugs worked out with this version so I can start working on the next feature set soon. Enjoy! :)

BiblioCraft v1.7.5 released and lots of BiblioWoods!

BiblioCraft v1.7.5 is officially released. This version is cross compatible with both Minecraft v1.7.2 and v1.7.10. I also fixed a bug with the potion shelf not showing text when wearing the reading glasses. Mostly, all the features of BiblioCraft v1.7.4 now work in Minecraft v1.7.2, which means BiblioWoods support for Minecraft v1.7.2.

Speaking of BIblioWoods, I also just release an updated version of the Biomes O Plenty edition which fixes tile entities (important fix!, please update if you downloaded the previous version) and I also released updated version of the Forestry edition, Natura edition, and Highlands edition! Head on over to the “Addons” page to find the download links for all 4 BiblioWoods editions.

As always, Head on over to the Downloads page for the newest BiblioCraft download and if you have any comments, questions or bug reports please post in the either comments below, on the official minecraft forum thread, or leave an issue on my github. Enjoy! :)

BiblioWoods is making a comeback!

This just in, I have officially released the BiblioCraft addon: BiblioWoods Biomes O’ Plenty edition for Minecraft v1.7.10 and BiblioCraft v1.7.4. This is the first of the many BiblioWoods addons I plan to get updated. Since the last release, Biomes O’ Plenty has added 2 new woods and removed one old wood so I added support for the new woods. I’ve also added support for my newer wood blocks with all the woods including the Fancy sign and Fancy workbench. Hopefully there won’t be any issues, I tested a bit and everything seems to be working good.

As a side note, please check out my Patreon if you would like another way to show your support. The more support I can get through Patreon, the more time I will be able to put into BiblioCraft development, including these kinds of addons.

Head on over to the “Addons” page to find download links to the newest BiblioWoods release. If you have any issues, comments, or questions, please leave them either down below in the comments, on the official Minecraft Forum thread for BiblioCraft, or feel free to leave an issue on github.

BiblioCraft v1.7.4 released!

Time for an update. I fixed a couple of crashes and added .obj models for 6 of the wooden blocks. That basically means 2 things, first is these new models use a standard plank texture which means it will use the plank textures from whatever texture pack you are using. So texture packs are automatically support on most blocks now. Secondly it means that the BIblioWoods addons will be much easier for me to maintain and get fully updated for Minecraft 1.7.10. BiblioWoods will be my next goal before I start a new feature set for BiblioWoods, so you can look forward to that sometime soonish.

Head on over to changelog to see a complete list of changes and then head over to the downloads page to find the newest release. As always, if you have any comments, questions or bug reports feel free to leave a comment on the website, post on the official thread on the minecraft forums, or leave an issue on my github.
